About you:

  • Production experience in single-page frontend applications built on frameworks and libraries like ReactJS, AngularJS, or VueJS
  • Experience with modern web testing frameworks (Karma/Jasmine, Jest, etc.), build systems (Grunt, Webpack), and have written highly scalable, reliable front-end applications
  • Interpersonal communication skills can work well in a diverse, team-focused environment with other engineers, product managers, designers, and so on
  • Strong product sensibilities and deep empathy for customers
  • Understand frontend challenges like application state management and asynchronous JavaScript programming. You understand the browser and its runtime, the internals of JavaScript frameworks, and the life of an API request from end-to-end. You’ve worked with APIs—perhaps you've built them from scratch or augmented existing ones as needed
  • Experience developing/debugging the backend
  • You're excited to rally engineers around you to solve a deep customer problem, even when no one asked you to


Our Stack:

We build with React and manage state with NuclearJS, our open-source Flux implementation using Immutable.js data structures. We write ES2015, leverage Webpack and Babel to deliver an application that is written with clean code that is performantly delivered to our users. Our React components and Sass code are reusable, generic, and live standalone in the freely available OUI library.
